VeChain is close to completing one of its most symbolic milestones – launching their own main net dubbed VeChain Thor. Apart from launching their own main net, VeChain foundation will have a token swap between the current asset VEN and the future token VET, which would be the native token of the new VeChain Thor network.

VeChain Thor is only Days Away

VeChain Thor is only several days ahead and in that spirit, the VEN community seems to be pretty ecstatic, while the public is waiting for the main net to be finally launched into the public, the team behind VeChain foundation is working on final preparations for the main net launch and the live version of VeChain Thor.

During the final preparations, among which beta testing of the upcoming network took place, the team behind VEN has also gone forward with announcing several partnerships that will come as integral for the future development of the upcoming main net Thor.

VeChain foundation has also published an official timeline to help the community follow up with the launching of the new main net, and in accordance with the published timeline, VeChain Thor should get to see the first public user on June 30th, that way entering July as well as a brand new stage for VEN, soon to become VET token.

The main net is said to be officially initiated with authority Masternode deployment for the live net, followed by the generation of genesis block, which would at the same time mark the birthday of VeChain Thor. On the same day, a snapshot will be taken on Ethereum with X-Node monitoring pauses.

The team has also added on the published timeline that the new wallet for VeChain Thor should come out on July 9th, while X-Node Binding service should become available on the same day.

Somewhere in mid-July, the token swap should be concluded with VET tokens ready for trading on exchanges where available. The exact time for when the live trading of VET tokens will begin is yet to be arranged with the exchange platforms that support VeChain trading and transactions.

It is expected that the exchanges will complete the process of token swapping by the end of July, which means that once exchanges are done with their part, VeChain Foundation will be providing token swap services to their users.

August 1st is marked on the provided timeline as the day when X-Node status monitoring is ought to resume, however, the team stresses out that the initial day for the mentioned resume can easily change as it all depends on how successful the token swap turns out to be.

Concluding the timeline of the VeChain Thor main net launch, Ledger integration with VET is scheduled somewhere in August while the exact date is yet to be determined based on the overall progress of the milestone completion as described in the timeline.

For now, everything seems to be on schedule, so the VEN community can expect to see VeChain Thor launched in several days from now, on June 30th.

In addition to the main net launch and the token swap from VEN to VET, all holders with a minimum of 10,000 VEN can become eligible for VET Strength Masternode while holding the given number of tokens in the time of the snapshot.

What Changes is VeChain Foundation Expecting with Thor Main Net?

Thor Main Net is said to be more scalable and more stable in oppose to the current chain that VEN uses. In oppose to the current chain used for transacting and operating with VEN currency, the new chain, Blockchain X, should provide an increased level of scalability.

This is the fact because the team is planning to have a vast number of smart contracts being operated with on the upcoming VeChain Thor main net, which is why the network is designed to be able to acquire a certain level of stability in the market for the future VET tokens as well.

VeChain Thor will act as Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS), working in many ways as a supply chain. However, the Thor main net is said to have the main goal of becoming one of the largest platforms for deploying decentralized applications.

In order to diminish the need for trust between two different parties when it comes to supply chain industry, VeChain Thor will be providing that trust factor in order to provide the needed technology for tracking down goods.

VEN will be consequently transformed into VET in the upcoming ending stage of the token swap, and on the Thor network, VET tokens will be used for powering up business ventures where the advantage on the network will be given to business owners using VET tokens.

Just like NEO, one of the well-known smart contract platforms produces GAS tokens, that is how the new VeChain Thor main net will be producing THOR that VET holders will be given for running applications on the platform and operate with smart contracts.

The network should consequently become one of the largest ecosystems for decentralized applications, alongside with providing a more stable rate of growth for VET tokens in the market.

VeChain (VEN) Performance

Only a couple of days away from the launching of VeChain Thor main net, VEN is down by -2.94% against the dollar due to the latest change in the market where the majority of crypto assets are down in the red once again after barely two days of rising up and trading in the green.

After the recent change in its price, VEN can be traded at the price of 2.62$.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
